Here are some of our recent reviews:

“The teachers, phenomenal. There's a whole range in the faculty when it comes to technique. Some

focus more on the artistry, others on the steps…the one thing that ties every teacher together is their

passion for the art of dance. The Artistic Director Mrs. Andrea truly wants to see everyone under her flourish.”

“My 5 year old is taking ballet … She's excited and happy and learning the basics. The teacher actually is able

to give one on one reinforcement while still teaching the entire class. Our child looks so graceful and I also have to

mention the diversity of the student body.”

“The students are very, VERY friendly. New students have a friend by the first day. The entire

community really is about mutual benefit, celebrating each other's accomplishments.”

“[My daughter] is now a part of the senior team and the friendships she has forged are the type that last a lifetime.

Truly a sisterhood of lovely young ladies. Their recitals will make your jaw drop, like you just went to a

"So you think you can dance" concert.” “The facility is beautiful. Super safe place in Encino, beautiful

waiting room, great dressing rooms, one for girls one for boys, three bathrooms, 5 dance rooms, an upstairs,

a fridge to refill water etc.”

“LABA turns out amazing dancers, period. We will be a part of LABA until our daughter graduates, and we drive from Ventura county 4 days a week to make it happen. 5 STARS LABA!”

“The LABA is an amazing place. They have all kinds of choices for dance activities, and my daughter and I have both been going there for years. What a workout and great teachers! I highly recommend this place.”
